The annual fireworks show at Channelside was underwhelming, but there's a reason.
Commenters on Twitter were quick to blame the show's organizers.
But according to Tampa Fire Rescue, which was overseeing safety at the show, a computer was to blame.
Officials said PyroTechnico, the fireworks company, was using a new program to set off the display, but it either crashed or malfunctioned. The company had to set off the fireworks by hand.
A photo tweeted by Devon Magill showed unexploded fireworks on a barge.
There were no injuries.
